Matt Langione is a principal at the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) where he specializes in bringing research-driven, high-potential "deep tech" to market. A leading global expert on the industrial applications of quantum computing, he publishes regularly on topics at the nexus of science, business and policy. At BCG, he advises Fortune 500 companies on building quantum computing (and other technologies that are poised to leap out of the lab) into their digital transformation roadmaps. He has addressed audiences at major conferences in the field and has helped steer U.S. Government policy and investment in quantum computing as part of the Quantum Economic Development Consortium (QED-C) and the Government Accountability Office (GAO).
Closing the gap between science and society has been a lifelong pursuit for Langione. He completed a dissertation at Berkeley on what happens in our brains when we're reading and why literary experience has unique, portable cognitive value. He has published on a diverse range of topics from philosophy to contact tracing and art and nuclear waste.
